Hi,

Rar is proprietary. Why do you stick to rar, there are other other formats, where you can make your own implementation without restriction.

If you still want to work on Rar then you will need to use winrar.exe

Rar is not free- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAR
You can go for 7-zip- http://www.7-zip.org/sdk.html

Hi,

You neither want to use Rar nor winrar!

The only option here is to contact winrar team- http://www.rarlab.com/wgmbh.htm

There is BUT not with .net you have to contact the programs author since it is a proprietary algorithm and the author likes to get paid. Sometimes the correct answer is that there is NO answer and we will keep objecting until you understand this.

I am not wasting your time. Sometimes the answer is NOT what you want i.e. It Can't be Done is an acceptable answer.

        Dim ExtractCmd As String = String.Format("X -p{0} *.* C:\temp\extract\", Password)

        Dim p = Process.Start(WinrarPath, ExtractCmd)

What Kalpesh has answered was not exactly the question... He has clearly mentioned that winrar.exe or rar.exe should not be used.

Hence, the answer is not acceptable.

Kalpesh does not want to assign any answer as a solution.

I would ask the moderators do the right job and assign the points to right answer.
